Our Core Values

We believe that the best dental care comes from a combination of Eastern and Western medicine. By blending the wisdom of ancient healing practices with modern technology and techniques, we’re able to provide truly holistic dental care that addresses the needs of your entire body.

We understand that your dental health is directly tied to your body’s overall wellness, which is why we take an integrative approach to care and collaborate with like-minded providers to ensure you receive the most comprehensive care possible.

We prioritize thorough patient assessments to ensure optimal oral health. Our evaluations include a comprehensive analysis of the patient’s oral microbiome, sleep and airway quality, oral pH, and overall bite function. By addressing these crucial factors, we can develop a personalized treatment plan for each patient. 

Don’t settle for mediocre dental care. Choose The Dentist Lounge for a new level of care that challenges the traditional methods of dentistry.

Airway Centered Dentistry

Airway centered dentistry plays a significant role in the holistic and functional approach to dental care.

Sleep and airway issues can start in the mouth, making it essential to address any underlying dental problems to improve breathing, sleep, and overall health. 

If you’re experiencing sleep or airway issues, The Dentist Lounge can help. Our dentists specialize in airway centered dentistry by focusing on optimizing oral health and considering airway function to promote long-term health benefits.

The Dentist Lounge Reviews

This was my first trip to the dentist in a long time because of previous experiences with a very shaming dentist. After getting through my avoidance, I came here and saw Dr. Dolgov. He was the opposite of shaming. He definitely made me feel comfortable and kept me extremely well-informed, which eased my anxieties. His kindness shone through, which is not how I think about dentists! I cannot recommend the dentist lounge enough for those who are similarly avoidant of dentists.

First time to a holistic dentist and I was blown away by the care that I received. They were knowledgeable, kind, and realistic about what was happening with my teeth and mouth. I did not feel like they were trying to sell me anything or convince me that I had more problems only they could solve. They gave me realistic solutions to my issues and then allowed me to make an informed decision.

When my coverage changed, my dentist was no longer in-network, and I had to seek new care. I am so glad I found Dr. Larbi! She is amazing -- thorough, informative, and clearly passionate about dental care -- and charming, as were her smiling, professional staff. I came in cranky and left smiling, too, after a very intensive cleaning which Dr. Larbi did herself. This office clearly approaches dentistry holistically, with an eye to care, prevention, and maintenance. I'm impressed and delighted to have found my next long-term dentist.
